18. Honda S2000

The Honda S2000, named for its initial 2000-cc engine displacement, is among the best driver’s cars ever built, and it is powered by one of the greatest engines of all time.

When the car launched, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder (code name: F20C) revved to a stratospheric 8900-rpm redline and produced 240 horsepower at 8300 rpm.

All of this to say that the S2000 was and remains a mind-blowing and revelatory machine, a car to be coveted now and forever in any of its forms.
